Hope Rescue - Erie Pet Shelter

Hope Rescue

Our mission is to help, heal and give happy tails to animals, pets and families in need. Helping, Healing, Happy Tails. HOPE helps families with animals in need of care. We help keep families and pets stay together by assisting with financial help. We help homes in need of food donations, veternarian bills, medications, training and MUCH more! We also help animals that are abused, abandoned, neglected or are no longer being cared for properly. Once an animal has entered our program, they are placed into one of our foster homes. All of our rescues are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, heartworm tested, dewormed and have flea/tick prevention applied. Our rescues also receive all necessary veterinarian care including specialty care and surgeries. While in their foster homes they not only learn basic obedience and proper manners, they also learn about love, fun and security. We are their HOPE! We are animal loving volunteers who spend our lives dedicated to our rescues and family pets that need temporary assistance. Help us help them! Hope relies completely on donations to help those in need. Please consider a tax deductible donation.

Adoption Process

After you have submitted the application, a representative will contact you to discuss your application, answer any questions and possibly schedule a Meet n Greet. Adopting a pet is a lifetime commitment! Please do NOT submit an application unless everyone in the home is ready to adopt a pet. All family members must be committed to the care, training and attention your new pet will require. This includes a financial responsibility to provide vetting and routine care. Meet n Greets are by appointment only and are scheduled by one of our representatives. All family members, including current pets, are required to come. This is your chance to spend a little time with the rescue and begin to learn about their personality. If the Meet n Greet is a success, a Trial Run is then set up. The Home Inspection is set up by a HOPE representative. They will come to your home to make sure you are ready for your new addition. They will look for safety hazards inside the home, check fencing, zip lines and tie outs etc. If changes are needed, they will guide you with advice on how to correct. When your home inspection passes then a Trial Run is set up. A Trial Run is designed to help the rescue transition smoothly into your home. A representative will bring the rescue to your home and if it is determined that you have everything ready for your potential new family member, the rescue will stay with you on a trial basis. We require that the first 2 days of a Trial Run be strictly dedicated to the rescue. Please do not schedule any other obligations so your focus can be solely on helping him/her settle into your home and begin to learn your routine. We will send their food, a favorite toy, and a familiar article to help make their transition as seamless as possible. A Trial Run normally lasts 2-3 weeks. If it is determined during the Trial Run that the rescue is a good fit for your family, a representative will make a follow-up visit and finalize the adoption. At this time, you will sign the Adoption Agreement and pay the adoption fee. It is mandatory that, by this visit, you have purchased a safe leash, an approved collar (martingale or buckle style) and a personal identification tag.
